 “Dear Peter Pan,

What I would give to fly away with you! And to go to Neverland.

Love, Audrey”


“To die will be an awfully big adventure.”

When you hear the name Peter Pan and Wendy, what does it remind you of? Happiness, childhood, innocence, flying away, love, and so much more right?

That’s exactly what this book makes you feel. It is beautiful and magical.The writing is amazing and it is so easy to understand. It makes you feel like you are living in the book and you are either: the Lost Boys, Hook, Peter, Wendy, Smee, or Tiger Lily(to be honest I didn’t even know she was a real character in the book. I thought Jodi Anderson created her. What a shame right?)

Peter Pan has been going on for ages and since I can remember. I think I fell in love with Peter(shh, I think most of us has right? And I am not ashamed to admit it!) I think you are never to young for Peter Pan.


Peter Pan and Wendy is a quick read and its about Peter Pan and how he came to meet Wendy, John, and Michael. As we all know he jumps into their room looking for his shadow. Wendy wakes up and ask:
“Why are you crying boy?”


and thus the adventure begins.


The adventures of swimming with mermaids, fighting pirates and meeting red skins and odd animals.


“All the world is made of faith, and trust, and pixie dust.” 

The adventures of meeting Tinker Bell and dealing with her.

And finally the sad decision.






Peter Pan is a beautiful story. I loved it and J.M. Barrie was a genius.

I think that in order for you to truly read this and enjoy this you just have to believe and love everything about Peter Pan. I recommend this to everybody!


“Just always be waiting for me.”

  2. I love Peter Pan! I’m actually writing a sequel to this story, where after ten years of Wendy leaving Never Land, Peter decides to pay her a visit. Midflight though, he falls and ages ten years making him a grown up and the same age as Wendy. Its a working progress, but any chance to spend more time with Peter, right?
